Kitty Wells, R.I.P.

Country music legend Kitty Wells passed away yesterday of complications from a stroke. She was 92.

Sixty years ago, Wells became the first female artist to top the Billboard country charts with “It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels,” paving the way for other female country artists like Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton and countless others. Wells would dominate the country charts throughout the 1950s most notably with “Making Believe”.

Wells continued to record through the 1970s and performed live until she retired from the stage in 2000.
